Irish stayer Commissioned can enhance his chances for the 2016 Melbourne Cup when he runs in the Group 2 £300,000 QATAR Goodwood Cup (2 miles) at Goodwood in England on July 28.

Former hurdler Commissioned raced for the first time for new owner Nick Bradley and trainer Gordon Elliott when he scored a one and three quarter lengths win in the £80,000 Queen Alexandra Stakes on the last day of the five day Royal Ascot Carnival.

Bradley said after that win that Commissioned wouldn’t be going over the jumps anymore and would concentrate on qualifying the six year old for the Group 1 $6m Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington on November 1.

“He won’t be going back over hurdles. He doesn’t look like a hurdler to me,” Bradley told Thoroughbred News.

“The Melbourne Cup is Plan A.”

“He’s back in training and the Goodwood Cup. We’ll go there very hopeful and the idea is to get him qualified for Melbourne now. That is our main aim.”

Commissioned has won three of his thirteen starts over the jumps, as well as three on the flat including his last start win at Royal Ascot on June 18.

In early markets for the Melbourne Cup at Ladbrokes.com.au, Commissioned is marked as a $61 chance while the Aidan O’Brien trained Order Of St George heads the betting at $11.

Order Of St George shot to the top of the Melbourne Cup market order after scoring a commanding win in the Group 1 £400,000 Gold Cup (2 mile 4 furlong) at Royal Ascot on June 16.

Last year’s Melbourne Cup runner up Max Dynamite and the Darren Weir trained Signoff share the second line of betting at $17 ahead of Albert, Amralah, Curren Mirotic, Fame Game, Last Impact, Mizzou, Protectionist, Tarzino, and the United States all on $21 while last year’s winner Prince Of Penzance is rated a $31 chance to win back to back Melbourne Cups.

The Willie Mullins trained Max Dynamite is also entered for the Goodwood Cup and the Irish trainer is also keen to get back to Australia for the Melbourne Cup.

    First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick
    question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you
    center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
    I’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my
    ideas out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or
    hints? Appreciate it!

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my
    own weblog and was curious what all is required to get set up?

    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any recommendations
    or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

  16. molten glass floats

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both
    equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.

    The problem is something that not enough men and women are speaking
    intelligently about. I’m very happy I found this in my hunt for something concerning this.

  17. business card

    When someone writes an paragraph he/she retains
    the idea of a user in his/her brain that how a user can be aware of
    it. Therefore that’s why this piece of writing is perfect.

    Thanks!

    I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s
    both educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you’ve
    hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that too few people
    are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I came
    across this in my search for something concerning this.
